Actually it's barely noticeable. A vertically flat UHF outdoor antenna, that's black wire mesh, mounted on an old black pole lamp with the lights removed. Sitting in a corner of the room.

This explains a lot.

Yeah, but its the sturdy kind, so it holds the trapeze quite well.

Went to see "Looper" in the theater last night. Great movie. It is the type of movie where there is nothing I can tell you that won't be a significant spoiler.... except that you should go see it.

Prometheus

I can see why it got a lot of criticism for certain story/character elements. There's definite room for improvement there. Ultimately, it's really hard to care about them when they're being that dumb and annoying. On the other hand, I can also see why it got praise for its visuals and audio, and I did like some of the ideas in the movie, even if they don't dig too deep into any of them. I don't mind the lingering questions, but it does put pressure on the sequel to really deliver something mind-blowing.

I dusted off the 'Crimson Tide' Blu Ray tonight. I hadn't seen it for a long, long time so it was like watching it for the first time as I'd forgotten most of it.

Still quite a good story & the remastering for Blu Ray was good both in audio & video.

Watched Bill Burr the other night, lol! I usually don't appreciate comedians who use so much colourful language but this guy was both hilarious and enlightening on his subject matter.

Watched the Avengers (again). Man what a treat, had the volume up to about +1 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Cat sat on the couch next to me and stuck it out to the end. I just love to watch her face when her ears twitch back when the splosions happen and there lots in this movie. This movie really is audio/video nirvana.

Moonrise Kingdom

If you like Wes Anderson, this is one of his best efforts. Lots of fun in the story, and his attention to detail in the look and feel of his movies is always notable, this being a prime example. The audio was also very good, culminating in a terrific thunderstorm at the end. He's also one of the best at choosing the perfect music to carry you into his worlds.

My love for Wes Anderson had fallen off over the years, but after Fantastic Mr. Fox and this, I'm back to anticipating his work.

I've also been watching Rules of Engagement. The promos never did a lot for me, and it's guilty of being just another formula sitcom that bludgeons its audience with stereotypes and political correctness, but there's still plenty of enjoyment to be had from the lines and the performances. The guy who plays Adam surprised me and actually owns his role as a doofus.

As far as comedic performances, though, I don't know anyone can hope to deliver lines like the cast of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The new season is off to a strong start. They're all so good at their roles, but Charlie and Dee have really made me laugh with the delivery of some of their lines.

Key & Peele is still funny. Still not the most classic sketch comedy, but it has some truly inventive moments, and they fully embrace being clowns.
